These Western Omelet Breakfast Enchiladas will make a wonderful breakfast and brunch dish. First, sauteed veggies are mixed with soft scrambled eggs, cheese, and seasoning. Then, this tasty egg and veggie mixture is wrapped in a tortilla and baked with more cheese, veggies, and herbs.
I wonder who came up with the brunch concept? Who was it that woke up late on a weekend morning, went out and demanded that they be served an omelet after 11 a.m.? Whoever it was is obviously a genius.
Brunch is a wonderful idea for the lucky people who get to sleep in and are not woken up by children jumping on their head at 6:30 in the morning. It makes me truly appreciate the days when grandma had the kids. On those days, brunch is a peaceful treat, especially if there is a Mimosa and Bloody Mary involved.
These Breakfast Enchiladas will be a perfect weekend brunch. It’s full of flavors inside and out. Soft, fluffy scrambled eggs are mixed with sauteed veggies and seasoning for a delicious filling inside a soft tortilla. Cheese is a must, the more cheese the better! So grab a bag of shredded Mexican cheese mix and go bananas.
I also topped the wrapped enchiladas with more fresh tomatoes and cilantro before covering it with cheese and baking. It adds a delightful fresh flavor to the enchiladas. Don’t forget some avocado too. Avocados make everything better!
If you’re making this recipe for a special gathering or a holiday, serve it with a batch of Bloody Marias!
CAN BREAKFAST ENCHILADAS BE GLUTEN FREE?
It is quite simple to make these breakfast enchiladas gluten free. The only gluten containing ingredients here is the tortillas.
You can substitute flour tortillas for corn tortillas, just make sure it is labeled as gluten free or has no glutenous ingredients.
Another good idea is to check the Mexican cheese mix to make sure that it is gluten free.
If you do not like corn tortillas, most grocery stores carry gluten free tortillas. I haven’t tried all GF tortillas there are but I do like the ones that are made with a vegetable like sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes make these tortillas softer and less like a cardboard.

Always a fan of Lyuba’s recipes – and this breakfast enchilada is a fine and tasty one – but I must respectfully submit that is is misnamed. A Western Omelet by definition has some type of ham in it along with the pepper, onion, etc. This recipe might be better titled “a Southwestern veggie omelet breakfast enchilada”.
Thank you so much, Marc!
Hmmm, you know I didn’t realize that. When we had a Western Omelet on a menu at a restaurant, it didn’t have meat in it. I should have double checked. I’ll edit the recipe name 🙂
